This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Pffft. They got as good as they gave, each and every one of 'em.

Same goes for rpg.net mods. If Cessna had stuck around, no-one except Seanchai would be hassling him, and everyone would tell Seanchai to shut the fuck up.

Anyone well-known to the board members is going to get a bit of a razzing when they show up. Stick it out a week or so and they'll ease off and then you'll only get as much as anyone else does.
Rules for effective DMing:
1. Bring snacks.
2. The dice are always right.
3. I master the game, the game does not master me.
4. Momentum over perfection.
5. The game must go on!

So I'm crazy in remembering some negative threads about Borgstrom on RPG.net?


I certainly don't remember any.  Of course, I do remember some individual criticisms of her; but I have never seen anyone sling even close to the same kind of attack against her that I have regularly seen against Siembieda (accusing him of being opportunistic, or insane) or Dancey (accusing him of being a self-serving megalomaniac).

And of course, one could certainly argue that Borgstrom is opportunistic, self-serving, megalomaniacal, insane, and a crappier game designer than Siembieda by far, at that!  But try to say any of that about her on RPG.net and you'll be banned.

I remember a few, but they were after you got banned - like two years ago I think.  There was a fairly significant Borgstrom hate-on in one thread or another.
I don't remember any bannings coming from it that, within the context of RPG.net rules, weren't justifiable.  I think I remember one guy getting banned, but he ripped into her pretty good, and in a wholly unacceptable way, by TBP standards.  Given she posts there from time to time, its understandable.  But I know there were others who were very openly critical of her, and weren't sanctioned.  Because, again, they attacked the idea and the game, not her personally.

No, again, I have seen some people say similar things about Dancey, and they should have gotten at least warnings, if not suspensions.  And Siembeda gets some significant hate-ons.  But most I've seen are carefully couched to be critical of the game, or very specific actions he has taken.  Of which, where Siembeda is concerned, there are MANY such specific actions that can be roundly criticized and mocked.
